    Introducing BitBot XL, taking the much-loved BitBot to the next level. There are several changes, some subtle, some less so, to give a much-improved experience of using and working with the BitBot.

    The Microsoft Makecode Extension for Bit:Bot also works for BitBot XL. Go to the Advanced tab or the Tools gear icon and select Extensions, then search for BitBot. It can automatically detect while running which version you have, or you can force it to be the Classic BitBot or the new XL.

    Dimensions: approx 10% larger in length and width
    Chunky wheels
    Ready assembled with battery pack permanently attached
    Motor gearboxes fully covered to minimise fluff, etc., in the gears
    Microbit mounted vertically
    Uses standard breakout connector for ultrasonic breakout
    Line sensors no longer share pins with the Microbit buttons - removes all Bluetooth pairing issues and allows use of buttons in your code
    Pen holder is fitted as standard and is mounted directly over the pivot point for better drawing
    Indicator LEDs added for line follower sensors
    2 GVS outputs provided for potential servo usage with 5V power
    Makecode extension has been changed so code is compatible with both Classic and XL versions
    Buzzer now connected on Pin 0 so you can play music through it

    Plus it still retains all these features from the classic BitBot:

    2 micro-metal gear motors, both fully controllable in software, for both speed and direction
    Wheels with rubber tyres for maximum grip
    Front ball castor
    12 smart RGB LEDs in 2 sets of 6 along the arms either side - select any colour for any pixel to produce stunning lighting effects as your Bit:Bot XL moves around
    2 digital line following sensors - code your own line-following robots and race them to see whose code gets the fastest lap time!
    2 analogue light sensors allow your Bit:Bot XL to be programmed to follow a light source such as a torch, or you could code it to go and hide in the darkest place it can find
    Buzzer - make beeping sounds or music whenever you want
    Powered from integrated 3x AA battery holder with on/off switch and blue indicator LED
    Easily plug your BBC micro:bit in and out using the vertical edge connector
    Expansion connections at the front for accessories
    Two GVS connectors with 5V for servos (shared with light sensors)
    BBC Micro:Bit not included.
    Batteries, pen and ultrasonic sensor are not included.
